Earlier, opener Lhuan-dre Pretorius gave South Africa the lead for a little while. But in the middle overs, Musheer Khan, Murugan Abhishek, and Priyanshu Moliya, three spinners, entered the game and strangled the Proteas.
Throughout their innings, India did not let up on the pressure and never let up on the hosts. After being restricted to a score of 244/7 in 50 overs, South Africa became the first side in this tournament to score more than 170 against India.

The guys in blue have not only triumphed in every game they have participated in, but they have also completely destroyed their opponents, winning three of the matches by more than 200 runs. They were strong favorites to defeat South Africa, the hosts, and carry on with their quest for a sixth championship. With six straight victories in the competition, the defending champions India have advanced to the final thanks to their impressive all-around performance, which has guaranteed their supremacy.

It will be difficult to identify a single factor driving India’s dominance in all categories, especially in the last three games. In the event that the batters have buried their opponents beneath a mound of runs, the bowlers have produced victories with margins greater than at least 130 runs. In the U-19 World Cup, Australia or Pakistan will play against the defending winners, India.
